Meyer is picking on sentiment

Last year the player of super rugby? This year again showing form.

Heineker continues to persist with his bulls bias.

Why can we not obtain stats like the Americas use for Nfl for the loose forwards? Basically over super rugby for last year and this year the following stats: tries, assists, running meters, tackles made, tackels slipped, passes completed.

I bet if this was done for all 8th men and loose forwards keegan would shine. So sad we continue to select on sentiment ( ie pier spies looks the part) over real data.

What has happened to the other big loose forward Mayer prefered? Ie jacques pot jester? Selected on sentiment not on data and look where he is now.
I bet if we had a kiwi coach we would own world rugby.

Lastly like most high ranking positions (jobs), candidates have to perform psychometric tests and iq, and eq tests. I wonder how Meyer fared?
Thanks grant
